. he possessed every virtue that we like to ascribe. >> i'm andrea mitchell. that was a rare honor for danny inyohe. he is only the 31st person in history to lie in state in the rotunda. we expect to hear today from speaker john boehner. very shortly, in fact. the chances are he will be meeting with the president later today, but the chances for a budget agreement seem to be fading. the time grows shorter before the congress goes home for christmas. chris, managing editor of post politics.com, and nbc, capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. welcome both. chris and kelly, we've been through this before. we've seen this manufacture before, but now we are a couple of days before the christmas break, and both sides now, kelly, acknowledging that congress is going to go home for christmas without a deal. >> that's right. they are going to have to put this off in that period between christmas and new year's, and we have seen the movie that tells us deadlines are what reach results here. we're not quite on the deadline yet. all of it with staff and families and all the obvious reason
of play in the kwfsh blockosphere. hopefully we'll see that on andrea mitchell in just 30 minutes. >> well done. >> it shouldn't be a sticking point in the long run because this is much more just a negotiating ploy. there's still real hope for a larger deal, and the last thing i'll throw in there, and i asked speaker boehner about this today, the tragedy in connecticut, do you really want to have an elongated partisan heated battle with that as the back drop, of the country still very much in mourning, and he said to me that americans shouldn't have any more stresses after that. if you look at how the talks have expedited, especially since friday, i do sincerely believe this tragedy in kuhn conhas sort of given these leaders an opportunity to say, you know what, we need to put aside the heavy part sfwlan rhetoric, at least try to move towards something, les we look like we're even where we were just a few weeks ago, which no one thought even was possible. >> it's a reminder of the job that they were sent there to do, and, you know, an important reminder in the face of tragedy. nbc's luke r
